Default Utec or other piggybacks? When available?

HEy everyone, I just got my 04 black STI. I love the car, but am in need of more Horsepower. I just came off a 03 SRT-4 that I purchased b/c they would not finance me for the STI at the time. In the 4 months I had the SRT-4 I already had an upgraded turbo wheel, AVC-r, and Custom made up-pipe with 2 additional injectors(controlled by a rebic 3). There is no doubt the SRT-4 was faster from a roll than the STI(modded SRT). The STI feels much better down low, but after about 5k rpm's the power falls off. This car is a much better overall car than the SRT-4. Everything seems to be put together much better, and the handling is AMAZING(I've also owned a modded 95 M3, but that doesn't even compare to how well this thing grips).
Anyway, back to my question... Does anyone know when the Turbo XS Utec is coming out? I've read a few posts, and it does not seem that anyone is really making that much more power wihtout ECU tuning. I would like to put in the AVC-r that was in my SRT, but seems like a waiste of time if I cannot turn up the boost. I would like to get the Turbo XS turbo back system soon, but don't want to run into problems without the prober ECU tuning.

Thanks for any help.
